Pulp Fiction

Audio problem: The Philip Morris bellboy in Jack Rabbit Slim's does the famous "Call for Philip Morris." while walking away from the camera. When he turns to the side and does the call again, we can see that his mouth movement doesn't match the vocal.

Audio problem: After reviving Mia with an adrenaline shot, Vincent collapses onto the carpet. We can hear him say, "Oh man" but his lips are actually forming different words. (01:00:55)

Deliberate mistake: Both in the first scene and last scene of the movie, we see Yolanda and Ringo starting the robbery by jumping from their seat and start threatening the costumers. In the first scene, Yolanda says "And I'll execute every motherfucking last one of you." But in the last scene the line changes to "and I'll execute every one of you motherfuckers". (00:04:40 - 02:18:00)

Suggested correction: Tarantino has explained that this is not an error, rather, he did this on purpose. When we first examine the scene, we are seeing Ringo and Yolanda's conversation from their perspective. Obviously, because this is their conversation, what we hear first is probably what was actually said. However, at the end of the film, what is said is different because we are no longer viewing the situation from Ringo and Yolanda's perspective, but rather everyone else in the diner, most specifically Jules.

Sounds like a typical Tarantino excuse for a stupid blunder.

Question: What exactly does the title of this film mean? Is there even an answer to that?

Sir William

Chosen answer: It is a reference to a class of fast-paced, sensationalistic, and frequently exploitive stories published in cheap magazines from the 1920's through the 1950's. They were called 'pulp' because of the cheap quality of the paper they were printed on, as opposed to the 'slicks' which were more like full-color magazines of today.
